manufactured crisis. >> it sure does. we have a senate insider with us who knows all too well how the senate works or in most cases doesn't work. former senate leader tom daschle and also the author of "the u.s. senate." welcome. >> thank you. >> on this sleepy siesta day, i want you to try to get obama's mind back on us. if you remember back in the presidential debates he sort of dropped a bomb when he said the sequester will not happen. a couple of his advisers went back and said, well, i think what he meant was, it should not happen. he also tried to shake off the proposal something that congress believed got four pinocchios. this came from the white house. and now according to politico, obama is not really reaching out to senate republicans to try and get anything done. my question to you is the sequester that obama actually wants because he thinks republicans will get the blames for the cuts? or this just a gamble that he didn't think was going to go all the way and as far as it has? >> well, i think the president has come to the conclusion that it's pretty hard to reach a deal right no
. >>> say farewell to the old fiscal cliff and debt ceiling and get used to this word. sequester. it hit in march if congress doesn't act. if you lost track of the debt ceiling and budget battles t came out of the debt limit deal. it was the white house's idea to hold washington's feet to the fire. the cuts were never supposed to happen. the committee that replaced them failed and at the start of the ewe near, the deal triggered even further until march 1st. we are faced with the looming cuts a few weeks away that boiled down to $85 billion that will be slashed by this fall if nothing happens. the focus has been on the cuts and the entire $1.2 trillion will be a 50-50 defense between defense and spending. to put us into perspective is the center for social inclusion. the sequester was designed to be something that would never happen. prot expect would scare washington into coming out with something else. there sounds out of washington, particularly from republicans that they might be okay with nothing happening and sequester being triggered. half is defense and half non-domestic discreti
will be a 50-50 defense between defense and spending. to put us into perspective is the center for social inclusion. the sequester was designed to be something that would never happen. prot expect would scare washington into coming out with something else. there sounds out of washington, particularly from republicans that they might be okay with nothing happening and sequester being triggered. half is defense and half non-domestic discretionary spending. can you explain to people what would be cut if the sequester goes into effect. >> it's a pleasure to be here. it's an important set of questions for americans. what we are talking about is whether half of these cuts are going to prevent our children from getting the supports they need to get educated in school including children with disabilities. whether we are going to be supporting the elderly to help with their heating bill or in the summertime, their air conditioning. whether we provide homeless assistance for people who are homeless to get them back into permanent housing. we are talking about a series of programs that not only help

was in response to quote/unquote outrageous u.s. hostilities. do you think that's the case or merely kim jung un's way of announcing himself on the president's state of the union of the day? >> this is an in your face type of explosion because they're doing it at a very interesting time. there is a new prime minister in japan. there's a new south korea president, a new president of china and frankly the day before the state of the union of the president of the united states taking over the second term. look. they are not there yet and have a distance to go before they'll be able to actually miniaturize a nuclear warhead and mate it to a missile with a missile to reach out to the united states but this is a dangerous situation. and the real key to this is china. they have to -- they're necessary in order to ratchet in an influencing north korea from not building another bomb, not doing proliferation and hopefully stopping them from having nuclear capability and has to be our goal but i think the united states has to be begin to approach this not just as north korea but how does removing forces in
't want to use the word filibuster, but calling for a supermajority of 60 votes pretty much boils down to the same thing. harry reed is moving ahead with a scheduled yes or no vote anyway, that's scheduled for next hour. if he can get his democratic ducks in a row, he only needs five democrats to vote with him. republican rand paul is putting a stop on his -- while democrat dianne fienstein is delaying calling the vote another two weeks, she's opting to hole the nomination hostage until the white house forks over more documents on the administration's controversial drone program. but is delaying an inevitable vote really the best way to get what you want and what precedent does this set for the future? byron jorgen is all too familiar with the washington environment. let's start with the chuck hagel filibuster situation. senator mitch mcconnell said, i think the president is entitled to an up or down. that is simple majority vote on nominations, both to his cabinet and to the executive branch and also to the judiciary, clearly the republicans have somewhat changed their tune on the tha
graham and you have a town meeting, a lot of people are thinking is graham really with us? is he fighting the president to the wall the way we want him to? lindsay graham does have to be very concerned about getting primaried. everyone's talking about chuck hagel. i think back in their district the intensity, the people who demonstrate real interest, intensity and knowledge about the situation, are they the conservative base? for the most part for someone like lindsay graham, absolutely yes. i think that's key to what's happening here. >> all right, mr. crowley, let's talk some turkey. mike murphy has a post-op in time saying the white house has come to the shaky conclusion that the president's best tactic is continue the campaign theatrics and force the gop congress to bend to his will. he writes the president must abandon the silly campaign 3.0 stuff and face reality and since magic doors one lock the door to the votes "some beneficiaries pay more and change cpi," which is budgetary code for slyly lowering budget increases over time. what do you think of this strategy? do you think repu
